That’s hawksome

Art Gym, a prestigious arts collaborative in Denver, granted Madi Brunetti (Art, ‘21) the six-month CREATE award residency. Designed to be as cost-effective as possible, the Art Gym frees artists from the need to rent a private studio or purchase expensive tools. It also provides opportunities for networking, inspiration, and artistic development. 

Brunetti’s art explores the human form and frequently incorporates moth iconography, yarn threadwork, and heavy oil paint strokes that ooze color and depth. The residency will provide professional training and exposure to Brunetti, whose tenure will culminate with an exhibition in January 2023.
